Blame it on the crappy economy, the eighty-trillion Hollywood breakups, or the bossa nova, but celebrity New Year's Eve wishes were totally more inspirational last year.
I'm just not sure how I can be expected to have a positive 2011 when my collection of NYE star-tweets is so . . . flaccid.
Just take a look at what we had to work with last year:
Randy Jackson: "Leave your old stuff in the past & starting out fresh is always good! Be safe!"
LL Cool J: "Things start out as hopes and end up as habits. I hope you have an amazingly successful new year."
Ellen DeGeneres: "One more day to check everything off your 2009 "To Do" List. (That reminds me, I need to make a 2009 "To Do" List.)"
Rose McGowan: "Happy new year's eveybody! Whatever your wishes, I wish a million times more for you. Xo, Rose"
Diddy: "May all your dreams come true in 2010!!!! Let's go!!!!"
Lindsay Lohan: "Wishing everyone a blessed new year in 2010! Everyone get ready for more (but positive-LOHAN MAYHEM!!!!!!!!) Thanks for all of your support!"
Nice, right? Kind of go-get-'em-tiger-y? Sort of inspiring, except maybe for Lindsay's horribly ironic tweet?
In comparison, here's what's on tap so far for 2010:
Ricky Martin: "Australia,New Zealand,Asia! Everyone in the east!!! #HappyNewYear!"
Usher: "Miami! NYE! Need I say more #OMGTour"
Real Housewives of New York City's Kelly K. Bensimon: "2011 is the “year of love”
Snooki: "Its NYE !! Restin up with Jionni before we go balls to the walls tonight !!"
Rachel Zoe: "What is everyone wearing tonight?? Ring in 2011 with glamour, style and a smile :)"
Anthony Bourdain: "We’re throwing a bottle of Krug in the fridge, buying a couple of rib eyes and keeping our heads down. No pre- printed “I’m SO sorry for…” stationary needed tomorrow!"
David Alan Grier: "I think I just ate a piece of bad cheese! NY resolution: dispose of all vintage food n fridge!"
Come on, balls to the wall and bad cheese? Time to step it up a notch, Hollywood. You've got a few more hours before the ball drops, so get to typing.
(In all seriousness, happy New Year's Eve to all of you. May your plans be more exciting than mine, which involve drinking an afternoon Red Bull in an attempt to stay awake long enough to watch fireworks on television at midnight. WOO!)
